Prior to Diamond Visionics’ high performance visual simulation software, pilot simulation training was limited to pre-defined database areas all over the world. Diamond Visionics (DVC) wanted to change all that, and created a solution that simulated the experience of flying around the globe.

The company utilized funding from the Navy SBIR program to turn this vision into a reality. The technology, which eventually evolved into its patented GenesisRTX product line, has realized substantial success in both military and commercial markets, with revenues of $25.5 million.

Boeing is one of DVC’s largest customers and they employ its Enterprise Agreement with GenesisIG image generation software and GenesisSN sensor software on its systems including the F-15, F-16 and F-22 simulators. BAE UK uses its Enterprise Agreement to utilize GenesisIG for its F-35 Program and Typhoon, as well as multiple UAV programs for its maritime simulations in the UK.

“A lot of companies are in the visual simulation field, and we all create a pretty picture. But what we do is different,” explains Jason Gdovin, Marketing Services at Diamond Visionics. “We create the scene in real time, in 1/60th of a second. This on-the-fly rendering directly from source data provides the human in the loop with more resolution and content and is what sets us apart.”

This real-time rendering allows the user to rapidly change data sets with continuity, and eliminates the need to create an offline static database. The high-resolution graphics allow for a life-like flight representation to and from anywhere in the world.
